Happy 2013

Lets see since the Apple Cup entry life has been full. I've been off work since November 16th and officially retired since the first of December. In fact I've already collected my first pension cheque, lol. So had a small celebratory gathering at Jack n Dan's on Dec 6. Orchestrated by my good friend Mike P and attended by me two daughters and one son inlaw. Visited with some great long time friends like Bonnie and Pal and several retirees with smiles on their faces. Thanks to the many co-workers who commiserated with me. And my good buds and fellow fotogs Jonathan and Curry for sharing the celebration.

Been enjoying the time to accomplish a much needed spring cleaning in the basement. Also finding time to rework some very old images with the new versions of Lightroom and Photoshop. Fairly decent results so far, however there are some files that just suffer from bad technique and inferior kit and don't return any increase in quality. I get carried away and spend all day on the machine, :(. Its caused me to do some remodeling on the old page , which was long overdue.

Put up the tree this year and added some lights to the house's interior. The Mayor has taken me to several GU mens and womens games. Great photo ops at all games so far. Christmas brunch at grandma's as usual and more great photo ops. And made a run to Higgins Pt to check on our eagles. They teased and eased with fake fishing runs then would land in a tree. So on the way back to the car they decided to play and fish way the hell out there. But one didn't disappoint and I got a  small sequence.

Slowly acclaimating to the new status but it does take some getting used to. Everyday can be any day you want it to be Saturday, Wednesday - doesn't make any difference. So for now I wish all a Happy, Productive and Exciting New Year. tata for now
